As a continuation of your various and strong roles in supporting the revolution, and in concurrence with the civil disobedience, we ask you to boycott all embassies and Military Council representation posts outside Sudan, and to avoid any dealings that could provide funds to the Coup Council.

The Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA) today will not go back to the negotiation table with the Transitional Military Council (TMC) until those responsible for last week’s barbaric attacks on demonstrators at the Army HQ are brought to justice.

Our Sudanese people,
We are closely monitoring some poisonous calls by the Coup Council for resumption of the negotiations, in blatant disregard of the innocent lives we have lost.

Therefore, we unequivocally confirm that we will not sit again with the Coup Council.

June 4, 2019: The Sudanese Professionals Association (SPA) issued a statement that confirms the need for complete civil disobedience and open political strike, immediately, as the only measure left for the Sudanese people to hold the country from collapsing into total chaos and insecurity under the rule of the military coup council.

The World Federation of Trade Unions condemns the state violence and the attacks against the protesters, that cost the life of 30 ordinary and innocent persons. We express our condolences to the families of the victims and we demand the state violence to stop immediately.

The World Federation of Trade Unions extends its solidarity to the workers and the People of Sudan who continue their struggles for democracy and for the satisfaction of their economic demands. We support this fair struggle.

A Statement by the Forces of the Declaration of Freedom and Change: Escalating the Revolution and Terminating Negotiations with the Coup Council

On this day, the Forces of the Declaration of Freedom and Change (DFC forces) announced the beginning of an all-out political strike and civil disobedience, and termination of negotiations with the Coup Council.

After a day of a massacre on civilians, committed by the combined forces of the Sudanese military, the Janjaweed militias (also called the ‘Rapid Support Forces’), the ‘national security’ forces and other militias, in Khartoum and other cities and towns of Sudan, the DFC declared ‘an escalation of the revolution’, as follows:

Killing and burning at the vicinity of the sit-in in front of the army’s HQs.

The SPA and allies are calling on all citizens in all sudanese cities and towns to go out in marches, and block all streets and bridges in order to protect the revolution. SPA and allies also call for a general civil disobedience until the Transitional Military Council is toppled.

The Sudanese armed forces should fulfill their duty and defend the citizens from the Transitional Military Council’s militias.

The Sudanese CP issued a statement on the vulnerability of the transition process of the Sudanese Revolution and declared its perspective regarding the transition process.

The Political Bureau of the Sudanese CP issued a statement on June 1 regarding the political situation in Sudan following the overthrow of the Omar Al Bashir. The ongoing demonstrations of the Forces for the Declaration of Freedom and Change (FDFC) are occasionally being attacked. On the other hand, the Transition Military Council (TMC) that took over the power is delaying the transition of power to the FDFC. Under these circumstances, the statement of the Sudanese CP clarifies the position of the Party regarding the transition process.

Trade unionists, MPs and campaigners have launched the open letter below to build solidarity across the labour and trade union movement around the world with the uprisings in Sudan and Algeria. Find out more about how you can get involved in this campaign below. 

Dear comrade,

The revolutions in Sudan and Algeria are reaching a critical juncture. Millions have taken part in street protests and strikes over the past few months, bringing down dictators whose rule lasted decades. Yet the demands of the uprisings for real democratic change and social justice are still a long way from being fulfilled, as the military and security apparatus of the old regimes attempts to hold onto political power.

The highly anticipated third round of talks between the Sudanese Professionals Association and the Transitional Military Council (TMC) was wound up last night without reaching agreement on the outstanding issues.

In a statement issued after the meeting, SPA blamed the failure on TMC’s insistence on “putting the cart before the horse”, in reference to the Council’s uncompromising demand that it holds the majority of seats, and the chairmanship, of the Sovereign Council. SPA dismissed that stance as against the intent and purposes of the Declaration of Freedom and Change (DFC), which envisages a civil authority structure at all levels of governance, including the sovereign council. SPA announced the start of the build up towards civil disobedience and a general strike. Since the call the general stike was issued, many professional bodies and associations declared their readiness to answer the call.

We have been hearing a few Sudanese voices, which we do not want to accuse of disloyalty, although in our opinion they deviate from the epic unity of the Sudanese protestors. These voices seem to be influenced by divisive discourses calling for sectarian discrimination. This, in turn, has raised our concern and the concern of the Sudanese people fearing that the Sudanese revolution, which amazed the world with its peacefulness and civility, might turn into a battlefield fot polarized radical religious and denominational ideologies.
